Singhara halwa is very simple yet delicious halwa recipe prepared specially during fasting (vrat).  You can see one side of halwa looks plain I kept it like that to show you guys normally the halwa will become like this and we just need to stir and break in pieces before eating as you see in the major part.  It taste best eaten hot/warm so eat it right away after you prepare this.
